Pay directly with Sofort

- From October 20th 2023, this payment method will no longer be available for new merchants joining Buckaroo -

Sofort (formerly Sofortüberweisung) was acquired by Klarna in 2014. In 2017, the payment method was integrated into Klarna's product offering. Sofort (known as 'Pay now' in the Netherlands and Belgium) is a direct payment method of an international nature. Consumers from Germany and abroad can easily pay by bank transfer through their own online banking system. The payment method is similar to an online bank transfer, with instant confirmation that the transfer has been initiated by the consumer's bank.
